O’Reilly has published the third edition of the C# 3.0 Cookbook bestseller. The book has been updated for C# 3.0 and the .NET 3.5 platform. It contains more than 250 recipes for problems programmers encounter every day. This book is for those developers who want to rapidly find a solution to their problem without having to dig into a lot of documentation.

The entire book and the recipes have been updated for C# 3.0 to make use of the newest features of the language. There is a completely new chapter on LINQ (language integrated query), and the recipes chapters contain new examples on extension methods, lambda functions, object initializers, synchronization primitives, and others.

Some of the topics covered in the book are:

  • LINQ
  • Numeric data types and enumerations
  • Strings and characters
  • Classes and structures
  • Generics
  • Collections
  • Exception handling
  • Delegates, events, and lambda expressions
  • Filesystem interactions
  • Web site access
  • XML usage (including LINQ to XML, XPath and XSLT)
  • Networking
  • Threading
  • Data Structures & Algorithms

All the examples can be downloaded from O’Reilly. They include tested code which can be reused in applications.
